Fantastic fresh Indian food. Ate here twice during our week long stay in Ajman, once for dinner and once for lunch. The quality was equally fantastic on both occasions and fully justifies its high rating on Tripadvisor.

Visit Bukhara, you will not regret! Lovely tasty food in the real Indian way. The variety of the menu will suit anyone who prefer the original flavours, a good mix between vegetarian, chicken, fish and lamb. The crew is very friendly and service minded.

Reading the rest of the reviews over here, I do wonder if Bukhara was just having a very bad day when I happened to stop by. The decor was great and the service was very friendly but the food was shocking. The appetizers were bland and the main courses lacked both salt and spice. The naan and roti were overdone... More

If you visit Ajman, make absolutely sure to visit Bukhara Indian restaurant, located inside Kempinski hotel. I heard they were the second best Indian restaurant in the UAE according to Zomato, which for itself it’s not a small feature. However, having not knowing the number one, I can say this was simply the best Indian cuisine I have ever tasted... More

I always thought that the name Bukhara was a protected and patented concept to make sure the name protects quality. I was quite annoyed to realize quickly that this restaurant does not cook Bukhara style. Good was like warm , mixed grill dry and naan very chewy. The butter chicken was the best we had on that day. Please visit... More

Treat yourself to the rich heritage of authentic Indian cuisine. From juicy, blended, tender chunks of impeccably marinated Murgh Malai Kabab to the world renowned Dal Bukhara, whipped up to perfection by cooking it overnight in a traditional way, each dish is a regal, mouth-watering experience. The succulent tandoori feast is low on oil and high on authenticity and taste.
